A 3-person exhibition organised and hosted by Chapter Gallery, Cardiff. Cuddon presented 17 artworks alongside works by Emma Hart and veteran artist, Nicolas Pope, establishing a conversation around shared formal and thematic approaches; materiality, tactility, the body and the abject. Cuddon extended this principle of cross-generational dialogue to explore how her own artworks, both sculptural and 2-dimensional and created over a 9 year period could be brought together to explore nuances of expression across a range of artworks and mediums which on the surface originate from the same seed. Fired and painted clay sculptures were paired with collages composed of printed and drawn elements creating a tapestry of surface and texture through which expression and meaning was conveyed.
